AMCASH provides characterisation and analysis of polymeric materials, as well as desk based research and consultancy work. Our lab-based support focuses on thermal and mechanical testing, microstructure characterisation and modelling and simulation

We offer:

  • Desk research to understand markets and investigate suitable materials
  • Material identification
  • Mechanical testing: to determine the mechanical properties of materials such as the tensile strength, flexural modulus, and compression properties.
  • Process optimisation by investigating polymer responses to different processing conditions
  • Thermal properties; processing temperatures/conditions, operational limits
  • Stability and degradation studies; product failure
  • Determining the impact of constituents; additives, blends, impurities, on-material properties and processing.

We commonly adapt our facilities to meet other testing needs and materials, including novel polymer characterisation testing methods.
